The opening of Lady Gaga's halftime show at the Super Bowl featured an amazing sight you can expect to see more of in the future: a fleet of 300 drones lighting up the sky and transforming into an American flag.
The drones, dubbed the "Shooting Stars," did not communicate with each other but were controlled by a person using a single computer with technology that maker Intel says can be used to operate fleets of more than 10,000 drones, TechCrunch reports.
The basketball-sized Intel drones are a new, simple type of drone "designed for entertainment purposes such as festivals and entertainment events" and are capable of creating up to 4 billion color combinations, Intel says in a press release.
Because of FAA and Super Bowl restrictions, as well as the unpredictability of the weather, the stunning drone show was pre-recorded earlier in the week. The drones were also used to create a Pepsi logo.
